Jabil Eyes St. Petersburg, Florida, for New Headquarters
The company plans to expand operations at its current site at Roosevelt Boulevard and Dr. Martin Luther King Street North via a partnership with the City of St. Petersburg. “We are thrilled with this news as we have been working for years to keep Jabil in St. Pete. Gateway is an area of focus for us and it is comforting to know that Jabil will be there for the long-term,” stated Mayor Rick Kriseman.
“Jabil has been committed to St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area for 30 years,” said Jabil CEO Mark Mondello. “The new campus will bring our local employees together on a single, safe, modern, environmentally friendly campus.”
According to company officials, while many other locations were considered, the current St. Petersburg campus has been selected as the preferred site and will be finalized once all of the necessary governmental approvals are reached. The City of St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, the St. Petersburg Chamber and Economic Development Corporation, and the Tampa Bay area have all been supportive in this process.
“Our home here in St. Petersburg will continue to be a global connector for our 180,000 employees worldwide. We’re excited to be part of the continued success of the City of St. Petersburg, Pinellas County and the State of Florida,” said Mondello.
Jabil has already selected the architectural firm of Gensler and Skanska USA as construction manager.
